Barcelona set to sign Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande

Barcelona set to sign Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande”

Tottenham are set to gain nothing from Paulinho's imminent move to Barcelona.

Barcelona have signed Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho for €40m (£36.5m), according to the Daily Mail.

Now the Brazilian has completed his move to the Nou Camp, as the side look to bolster their squad, following the world record-breaking departure of global star Neymar to Paris Saint Germain for £200m.

Paulinho failed to shine in his most recent spell in Europe during two years at Tottenham Hotspur before moving to Guangzhou in 2015.

The Brazilian has not hidden his interest in playing for Barcelona and revealed that he was hoping to get a clearance on a deal before the end of the week.

The Catalan giants have begun negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over Dembele, and it is expected that they will meet the Bundesliga club's €100m valuation.

The 29-year-old, who scored seven goals and provided two assists in 20 league appearances last season, has also re-established himself in the Brazil national team setup.

Barca have so far been unsuccessful in their attempts to land a more natural replacement for Neymar with huge bids for Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele being rejected by Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

"As a manager of a football club, I have bosses that decide, for example - just in general - if we sell a player or we don't sell him".

"I have to show my work and then people will see how I play and they will be able to judge me".

"There had been a lot of talk and you could sense there was something as some players had commented something to me the week before, but I didn't know for sure".

"[I found out about it] the day he came to my office to tell me, which was the day it was made public", he added.
